TP0735-D. Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias taurus) swimming near shipwreck. Fearsome appearance but not aggressive, posing no threat to divers unless provoked; can hover in midwater by using stomach as a buoyancy compensator after they have gulped air at surface; feeds on bony fishes, sharks and rays, crustaceans, and squid; some migrate to warmer waters in fall and winter and cooler climates in spring and summer. North Carolina, USA, Atlantic Ocean.<br />
